From the Las Vegas Sun: A hit-and-run accident Tuesday afternoon escalated into a shooting that sent one person to the hospital and another in jail on a count of attempted murder.
According to a Metro Police arrest report, a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
driven by Scott Eakens, 35, Las Vegas, was struck in a hit-and-run
Tuesday near Sunset Drive and Eastern Avenue. Eakens reported the
incident to 911 dispatchers and followed the other vehicle, a Ford F-150
pickup. An unidentified female directed Eakens into the business
complex at 6200 McLoed Drive. There, Eakens later told police, he found
the pickup and a man who appeared to be checking damage to the truck’s
Eakens told police he pulled up behind the pickup to prevent it from
leaving again. As Eakins was unbuckling his seatbelt to get out of his
Grand Cherokee, he told police, the man got into the Ford, put it into
reverse and rammed the driver’s side of the Jeep with the pickup's rear.
Saying he feared for his life, Eakens told police he removed a
handgun from his waistband and fired multiple times into the Ford. Two
of the rounds struck the Ford driver in the head, according to the
At that point, Eakens again called 911, this time to report the shooting. It was 5:15 p.m.
So, you have a guy ram his car into the driver's side door and the shooter didn't fear for his life? Cops have shot and killed many people for a lot less when it comes to cars trying to run over cops.
The cops and DA blew it in this case, if this is what really happened.
